It is no secret that most of the Twitter users aren’t using Twitter in the best ways. Every month, Twitter improves the platform with new features and tool releases. Yes, it is not easy to know and use all the features. But also, knowing and using useful features, techniques and options can make your life easy on Twitter.
In this blog, we bring you a few quick features/ ideas you can try to use in your everyday Twitter activities to enhance your Twitter experience and success.
Review Your Pinned Tweet
Most of the Twitter users do not have a pinned tweet. Pinned tweets can have a strong influence on your follower count increase. Do not have the same pinned tweet for more than one month. Update your pinned tweet regularly.
Get Twitter Notifications As SMS
Not many know that this feature even exists. You can enable notifications to your mobile number on Twitter. An advantage here is that you can personalize the kind of notifications you want to receive in SMS, thus reducing the number of messages.
Save Your Frequent Searches
Depending on the type of Twitter account you maintain, you will have a specific set of keywords you might frequently use for searching. Using the ‘Save Search’ option in Twitter will enable you to save your regular search queries for easy use later.
Use Find Friends Option
Usually, we find our friends with their mobile number and your primary mail id. You can use ‘Find Friends’ feature which will help you to find your friends in Twitter based on multiple search options.
Visit Twitter Analytics
Analyze your account performance in all means in Twitter Analytics. See what works well for you and what does not. Use Twitter Analytics to understand your audience pulse and tweet accordingly.
Use Twitter Automation Tools
If you are someone who is aiming to succeed in Twitter, use Twitter automation tools like Tweetfull. These automation tools do all the work for you and easily make your profile a hit in your community/ business.
Retweet With Comment
Most of us who retweet others’ content just retweet directly. If you quote the tweet and write a small comment about what you feel about the tweet, it becomes more engaging for your followers.
Review App Permissions
We provide permission to various applications to access your Twitter content. More often, we would not revoke once we are done with that App. So review the app permissions at times and update them.
Use The ‘For You’ Screen More
Twitter in the recent past has improved the ‘For You’ screens multifold. Oftentimes you will find it boring in your timeline to see very similar tweets. The ‘For You’ window will display your tweets from similar interests which can be refreshing.
Create Your Own Hashtag
To build an impressive identity on Twitter, think of a unique and attractive hashtag. Use the hashtag more often in your tweets. Your followers will start identifying you by your hashtag. This will boost your business.
Use Twitter Community
There will be more interest in your tweets in the right community of similar interest than in your native timeline. So, in addition to your timeline, grow a habit of posting regularly to your Twitter Community.
Avoid Negative Interactions
If you are a regular Twitter user for your business or self, you will obviously come across controversial commentaries, uninvited comments, etc, the best you could do is to stay out of them. Replying/ interacting with them can have a negative impact on your profile.
Respond To Mentions
If you are receiving a few mentions, then you will be replying to them. But if you are an account with more mentions, then you might lose the habit of replying to them. We insist you to always allocate time to reply to your mentions. They help your account grow.
Add Two Level Security
Very few Twitter users have enabled two-level security on Twitter. Having two-level security can save your account from all potential hacks. Single level security can be thin, so activate two-level security.
Use Link Shorteners
In recent times, there is a lot of external links shared on Twitter. It is a better practice to use link shorteners to post your URLs in your tweets. In this way, you will have more space to compose your tweet.
Use ‘Twitter For Professionals’
‘Twitter For Professionals’ is a feature specifically developed for business professionals on Twitter. This has more value-added features in addition to the normal Twitter features. If you are running a business, then you can give ‘Twitter For Professionals’ a shot.
TweetDeck From Twitter
TweetDeck is a feature that enables you to get a better overview of your Twitter activities. You can add multiple Twitter accounts in TweetDeck and monitor if needed. The application is owned by Twitter itself and is a very useful application.
Start Using Twitter Notes
Twitter Notes is the most recent feature of Twitter. ‘Twitter Notes’ lets you write long tweets, stories, and blogs and share them within Twitter itself just like a regular tweet.
